Power transformers – Part 24: Specification of voltage regulating distribution transformers (VRDT)
|Publication Date:||1 July 2020|
|ICS Code (Transformers. Reactors):||29.180|
This document applies to medium power transformers from 25 kVA up to 3 150 kVA with highest voltage for equipment up to 36 kV, or in low voltage (LV) networks with highest voltage for equipment of up to 1,1 kV equipped with voltage regulating devices.
Voltage regulating distribution transformers are transformers equipped with components to control primary or secondary voltage for on-load voltage regulation purposes.
The main objective of the installation of a VRDT is to regulate the LV network voltage level (i.e. 400 V), to avoid violation of the limits defined by relevant standards or regulations. The VRDT must operate properly as a step down and step up transformer.
Transformers covered by this document comply with the relevant requirements set out in IEC 60076 (all parts) and, unless otherwise stated in this document, they also comply with European Standards EN 50160 and EN 50588-1.
